History of Park Name

Ernst Kjellberg was a Swedish chiropractor who established a clinic called Beachview in Millaa Millaa. His facility was developed from the 1930s and gained recognition far outside the Millaa Millaa district and successfully treated children with polio causing his reputation to spread. At it’s peak in the 1950s it had nearly 500 staff and patients.
